Ancestralizing the Present

Ancestralizing the Present was a free event hosted at The Dance Centre on June 10, 2017, with performances by Spakwus Slulem (Eagle Song Dancers), Git Hayetsk (People of the Copper Shield) and Aeriosa. The event marks the culmination of Mique’l Dangeli’s doctoral thesis “Dancing Sovereignty: Protocol and Politics in Northwest Coast First Nations Dance” and it involved “taking the time to get to know one another” – an approach that Dangeli believes to be closer to “reconciliation” than projects that simply tick the boxes of inclusivity, or demand that Indigenous artists perform settlers’ expectations of Indigenous culture.

All About Giselle

Giselle by Coastal City Ballet By Brittany Duggan

First staged in 1841, Giselle is often thought of as a straightforward story ballet. Vancouver-based Coastal City Ballet, a repertory company founded in 2011, stuck closely to the very specific and illustrative music by French composer Adolphe Adam, and choreographer Irene Schneider does an impressive job of working with the score to create scenes that challenge the various levels of dance ability within the company.

Through the Microscope

Lesley Telford's Spooky Action at a Distance By Naomi Brand Spooky Action at a Distance

In Lesley Telford’s latest creation, Spooky Action at a Distance, she draws from subject matter that is well served by the complex spatial patterns and temporal relationships of a group of young, moving bodies. The piece is an interdisciplinary collaboration with poet Barbara Adler.
